Emma Brown, a junior at Sycamore High School, won the National Science Competition for her research project on the effects of climate change on coral reefs. She discovered that rising ocean temperatures and ocean acidification are causing the destruction of coral reefs, and proposed solutions like reducing carbon emissions and developing new techniques for coral restoration. The judges were impressed by her research and ability to explain complex concepts. Emma plans to continue her studies in environmental science and hopes to make a difference in the world. The competition focused on the impact of climate change on various ecosystems, attracting over 1,000 participants this year.
